The Internet isn’t just another way to do business any more.
Increasingly, the Web is becoming THE way most people
want to shop and buy.
Recent holiday shopping shot past even the most optimistic
predictions, surpassing the $7 BILLION in sales mark at
last count. Half of all North Americans use the Internet to
make a purchase.
While only 46% of Americans have a computer at home,
most e-business sites get their biggest surge during the
middle of the day when most people are at work. Internet
sites let people do their shopping chores at their desk
during a coffee break. Given the busy lives most of us
struggle with, the amazing convenience and selection
offered by the Net is a powerful motivator.
Will a few giant corporations take over online selling the
way they’ve dominated regular retail sales? Not a chance.
There will always be plenty of room for small, home-based
entrepreneurs. The Internet is simply too big for any one
tycoon to dominate. The Web requires millions of business
owners like you, working together, to make it succeed.
That’s why even massive online firms like Amazon.com
rely on thousands of small individually owned affiliate sites
to drive sales.
Here are important things to look for when setting up your
1) Get the latest technology that allows you to have an
advanced e-commerce site up in seconds. There is no
longer a need to spend thousands of dollars and months of
your valuable time waiting on a web design team to finish
2) Insist on online sales reports. You should be able to
access your customer info and downline genealogy 24
hours a day.
3) Increasingly, highly responsive customer service is what
satisfies customers and keep them coming back to buy.
Use your instant information to insure no orders become
orphans or are filled incorrectly.
4) Keep your online store simple to operate 24 hours a day
even if you are on vacation. Make it as paperless as
possible with all forms and customer messages handled
online by your website and autoresponder-driven email.
